Protein Balls

Enjoy

Protein balls are my all-time favorite snacks to made. For one, I can make a batch of them, leave in the fridge or freezer, and take as I please throughout my busy week. They're loaded with nutrients to help keep me energized, packed with antioxidants, healthy fats and essential vitamins/minerals for a great healthy snack. 

They also help to curb any sweet cravings I might have. The secret to these delicious bliss balls is they actually have carrots in them..! (can you believe.) They were so yummy and these new bliss balls may be my favorite yet. Of course, I always prefer these homemade, no bake babies to their packaged counterparts.

  • 12 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup gluten free oats
